UEFA Womens Under-19 Championship 2017
The Irish Football Association has launched the 2017 Finals of the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship which will be played at venues across Northern Ireland; including our own Ballymena Showgrounds.
Tickets are available for the opening ceremony at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park, all Northern Ireland matches as well as the semi-finals and final and can be bought now via Ticketmaster.
Eight national teams, including Northern Ireland as hosts, will participate in the prestigious 16-day tournament next summer.
The Irish FA believes hosting such a major youth finals tournament will showcase Northern Ireland at its best, including our football, our facilities, our culture, our history, our fans and our unconditional love of the game.
The UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship will be the first time an international female football tournament of this magnitude has been staged in Northern Ireland and we are delighted to be involved too.
The planning for this prestigious tournament is already well under way and we are looking forward to delivering a highly successful championship that will have long-lasting benefits for football across Northern Ireland.
Members of the Northern Ireland Women’s U19 team and National Women’s Coach Alfie Wylie unveiled the tournament mascot.
The tournament will take place from 8-20 August 2017 in venues across Northern Ireland. Qualifying for the tournament begins this October with the official draw for the finals taking place in June 2017.
